Tuition and Financial Aid
Supporting successful students is important at the School of Informatics and Computing. We offer a number of scholarships. Additionally, we encourage students to consider other options for paying for college, including applying for state and federal financial aid. Here are some resources to help you understand the cost of college, as well as the different means to cover those costs.
IUPUI’s Net Price Calculator
The net price calculator provides students and parents an estimate of your net price for college, including possible scholarships and financial aid.
IUPUI Fee Estimator
The fee estimator is a tool that will provide you with a flat estimate of the cost of tuition and fees for different majors at IUPUI, but unlike the net price calculator, does not provide you information regarding your potential financial aid and scholarships.
There are many opportunities available for student financial aid, scholarships, grants, loans and work-study that help reduce college costs. We encourage you to investigate and pursue all options for which you may be eligible.
Make sure to visit the Office of Student Scholarships and the Office of Student Financial Services to learn more. Students can also use the Scholarship Search Engine to find scholarships for which they qualify. Current IUPUI students can also subscribe to the ScholarshipNews listserv.
You’ll be considered automatically for several scholarships by simply submitting your IUPUI admissions application. Beyond those scholarships are many more opportunities that require a separate scholarship application. Of course, there are also federal grants and loans for which you may qualify by completing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA will also help determine your eligibility for work-study.
